Verses in many languages extol the joys of singing around a glass of beer. The Beer Choir, a new national organization with nearly 20 chapters — now including one in New Orleans — wants to revive that tradition by compiling those songs and giving them a public airing.
The New Orleans Chapter of the Beer Choir (mission: “To make our world a little bit better by singing and drinking together!”) hosts its premiere event Friday at the Deutsches Haus in Metairie.

The Ladies Auxiliary made a donation to the Alice Birney School for them to buy 20 headphones for use with their computers in the classroom. It means that the class can all be on the computers at the same time doing their lessons.
The Deutsches Haus Ladies Auxiliary would like to recognize the work that teachers do often spending their own money to provide their classrooms with supplies and needed materials. Jefferson Parish was supportive of the Haus and its activities and festivals over the past 8 or so years. This is the Ladies Auxiliary’s way of saying thank you by giving some support to a Jefferson Parish School. They support early education as a way of developing good students, concerned citizens and happy adults.
It is a sad time for Deutsches Haus. The funeral of long-time member and active volunteer, Albert Bourg was on Friday, April 7. Details are in his obituary in the Advocate and are linked here.
There have sadly been 2 other recent deaths among our members: Jack Kingsley Smith (February) and Hans Ludwig Fink (March)
